Burke has agreed a one-year deal after a successful trial period.

The 33-year-old joins Kirk Broadfoot, Steven Smith and Kris Boyd in playing under their former Ibrox team-mate Lee McCulloch.

The former Scotland international played six times for Ross County last season, but his campaign was cut short in November when he suffered a viral infection which he struggled to shake off.

McCulloch told his club’s official website: “Chris had many options available to him so I’m thrilled that he will be a Kilmarnock player for the upcoming season.

“He’s a great signing for the fans and the dressing room. Chris has had a great career to date and has payed at the highest level. With his experience, Chris can pass this on to the youngsters coming through.”
